Time to Visit the Entrecard Forum for the First Time Again

Have you been to the Entrecard Forums recently? It is time to take another look if it has been a while. There is a new forum that Entrecard Founder Graham has been posting articles pretty regularly called Entrecard Economy. Here Graham and the Entrecard Members discuss ad pricing and drop values and more.

Graham is trying to find a way to make Entrecard better for it's members and is looking for a way to monetize Entrecard. I suppose venture capitalists like to see a profitable organization or at least one that has a future of profitability.

Graham is Doing Entrecard Market Research in Entrecard Forums

Plus, with an ever expanding user base, Graham is always busy looking for new features and ways to prevent abuse. Recently there was a thread created on the forum as Graham was doing market research to see if it was viable to tax the members or users that transferred Entrecredits. The title of the forum thread was called, What would you rather see. He was also looking for ways to limit the amount of credits that might be able to be transferred between non-linked users.

Now, if your initial response to the word "tax" was, "no way, I am gonna quit if they tax me," then you need to be checking in on the forums on a regualar basis. I think Graham is a reasonable businessman and is willing to listen to his user base. Sometimes it appears Graham is blue skying ideas and is looking for a sounding board to bounce his ideas.

Are You an Active Member of Entrecard?

Are you an active member of Entrecard? Has Entrecard helped you to increase your readership and the number of visits to your blog? If you feel strongly about the future of Entrecard then it is in your best self interest to spend some time in the Entrecard forums to find out what is happening.

Not all forum threads are worth much of your time. Sometimes you get subjects like, "Tattoos on Women", "Dropping Theme Song", "I Declare today Naked Day" and other similar type subjects. But, other times you get meaty discussions that will or might affect the future of Entrecard and the amount of traffic to your blog.

Advantages of Entrecard Forums

There are some advantages to spending time in the Entrecard forums. You get to meet the other members and find out that quite a few of them have a great sense of humor. You might think some are drunk on a regular basis. But, you will find that some are there to help you! The Entrecard members have a wealth of experience in driving traffic to your blog, writing blogs, preventing spam, finding good ad revenue sources and even how to make your computer work better.

If you are an Entrecarder and you have been neglecting the forums, then now is the time for you to check it out for the first time or again. We all would love to know you better and the Entrecard experience will be better if you participate.

We walked for Thirty Three days straight

We have arrived in Santiago. We walked for 33 straight days. Some days were 12 milers and as many as 18 miles or more in one day. We reached our destination. We decided not to rush to reach the city. Mary had accidentally banged her knee on the table at the restaurant the night before and it was a little tender.


Day 31 Palas de Rei to Ribadiso

We have walked 31 days to Santiago de Compostela

Today we started early because we had reserved a room at an albergue and we had to get there by 2pm or we lost the reservation. Mary set a blistering pace in the dark morning mist. Sunrise is at 8 am but this morning we had clouds and fog so it was darker than yesterday. The path through the city was okay but then leaving the city it became more difficult.


Three days of walking left in our Camino

We only have 66 kilometers to Santiago

We have walked for 30 days with only 3 days till we reach our destination of Santiago de Compostela. It has been an amazing journey. We are in the Galicia region of Spain known for the rain it receives. Well we are extremely lucky because the weather has been beautiful for walking. It starts out cool in the high 40s but then warms up to the low to mid 70s. With plenty of sunshine.

Walked 17 Miles Today

Today we walked 17 miles on the Camino

Today we are sitting at the albergue in Terradillos de las Templarios. We are at the halfway point in our journey. We have walked over 250 miles or 400 kilometers.

Finished a Third of our Camino Experience
